Georgette is made in solid colors and prints and is used for blouses, dresses, evening gowns, saris, and trimmings. Georgette has a very light and drapey hand, rendering it best suited to loose flowing garments and inappropriate for more structured pieces. Silk georgette is relatively delicate, but varieties made with synthetic fibers can be more resilient to damage. The crepe style S- and Z- twist weave makes the fabric springier and less lustrous than the closely related chiffon.
